Plot: An unknown time. An unknown place. Without reasons. With no future. His only desire is... Destruction!
A lone Samurai known only as Grave thirsts for the ultimate battle. Grave has stolen a mysterious coffin from the holy Tougan Temple — a coffin said to contain a great power. Trapped inside the sealed coffin is the Goddess of Destruction, confined and held at bay from laying waste to this world. Grave fearlessly travels the land dragging the coffin behind him, aware that what lies within is what he seeks — if only he can open it. Unknown to Grave, a young temple monk has embarked on a quest to return this relic to its proper home before anyone can unleash an unstoppable cataclysm... So begins the race to claim the coffin... but who will get there first?
«The action itself is also very good, despite Sakaguchi falling a little too much in love with certain moves, as mentioned above. The capoera piece is excellent - and why don't we see more of this on screen? - as are the ninjas. There are simply so many action sequences in the film that you just don't have time to catch a breath.»
«For what it is, Death Trance is a highly entertaining movie. The budget is noticeably low and the premise is far from innovative. That in no way detracts from the overall entertainment value. Yuji Shimomura and Tak Sakaguchi are a great team and are sure to provide an uproariously good time. »
